Yes, there lots of more advanced scenarios that we need to provide
docs for. There's also a serious need for people to review all of
TechBase for KF5 and Git, for example the Application Lifecycle page
still refers to SVN! If anyone has time to spare, jump in.

I'm wondering though if we shouldn't try organise a week where
*everyone* stops coding and writes or cleans-up some docs instead?

Yeap, linking to Contribute is appropriate here. Most of the stuff is
still very draft, but it has had all the unnecessary guff chainsawed
out, so now I'm shuffling things around trying to get the right flow
before fleshing out the details.
